Hearing aids are medical devices you wear in or behind your ear to make sounds louder.
Hearing loss is common and affects your ability to listen to conversations and communicate. Not being able to clearly hear or participate in conversations may interfere with your ability to work or keep you from socializing with friends and family.
With a hearing aid, you can listen, communicate, and participate in daily activities, improving your quality of life.
